Santa came! He really did, we must have been good boys and girls as we got some really rather fine and dandy presents including a tripod for Wavey to play with his camera and a purple "ice" watch for me, yay!
But I think it's safe to say that Wavey's favourite present was these:
He's yet to take them off, he loves them so much.
And I got a chef's blowtorch! So basically I can't wait until I can get into the kitchen and start setting things on fire all in the name of gourmet food.
As we didn't deviate from Delia the day ran very smoothly indeedy. Nothing broke, the turkey was marvellous, the parsnips were a smidge caramelised but the rest of the dinner was really yummy, and Delia's mincemeat and apple crumble was a deeeeelicious alternative to Christmas pud. But there must be some kind of family curse cos my sister's boiler broke! But as she has kiddies they get priority service so it should be getting fixed in a couple of days, and it's actually kinda mild outside, we're not buried underneath snow our freezing our asses off in minus temperatures, so heating is not really needed that much.
Anyhoo, hope you all had festive and happy times. Merry Christmas 2011!
